Woman of the Year

The Women on the Move Awards recognise and celebrate women who have migrated or fled persecution themselves and find time to provide essential support and inspiring leadership on a grassroot level to others starting a new life in the UK.

Nominations are now closed for this category.
This Award is specifically designed to recognise and celebrate the work of migrant and refugee women. 

Any woman who self-defines as a migrant or refugee can nominate herself or be nominated by someone who knows her work well. However, she must:

  • consent to be nominated
  • have been actively involved in community work in the UK during the last 12 months. Community can mean many things – for example, it may be defined geographically, on the grounds of country of origin, or it may be a community of interest.
  • work to support migrants and/or refugees to settle in the UK, although this work does not need to have been with or for women, or on gender issues.

If you have any questions please contact womenawards@migrantsorganise.org

Nominations are now closed! The deadline for submitting nominations is January 6th 2017. Entries will be judged by an expert panel.
